was incredibly reasonable last night when discussing the nsa and i think if you replaced him with george bush, nobody would be complaining. george bush would have said the same. >> not on jay leno. >> you act like a hypocrite, you condemn him because it came out of his mouth. having said that, there's an overwhelming amount of chaos inside and outside this country. president obama takes on the role of a calm pilot, weaving the plane through the storm. the problem is his policies. you can argue about being on jay leno. that's not the problem, the problem is he should be doing something about bigger issues like joblessness, which is a fact that he is not at all engaged in the fracking issue which would do a lot to reduce strife in the middle east, lower the four buck, five gallon buck of gas. not ragging on him for playing basketball. what a bunch of baby games. >> i push back a little, too. i don't have a problem with him playing golf on free time, but when you close 22 embassies, pull that many american diplomats off line. >> he hasn't come out in an official presidential press conference to
was one of the people, we referred to george bush as king george a lot of us. that's how we saw george bush and his administration. i really don't think there's much of a threat to the checks and balances. it's no more a threat to our democracy than the senate or the senate rule and filibuster, t the -- one senator's ability to hold a nomination of the president up. the need to get 67 votes in the senate, to get anything done. all these things are the checks and balances and any president deserves -- needs -- he's the only one elected nationwide. no one else is, all the senators and members and districts are states. he's got to use that power to get what he wants done. then, yes, the other checks and balances and the courts can step in. i don't think there's anything -- this is not unusual. obama is not doing anything any other president, particularly george bush didn't do. >> mark, to joe's point there, the president has to use his power to get things done. lot of people say that involves building relationships on capitol hill persuading people with meetings and consensus. the critici
over a decade ago after 9/11 where george bush to get the patriot act through. huge battles. i want to know is obama ready? does he have the stomach to go into a legislative battle such as he's going to have to have? he wants this committee to report in 60 days that's going to fix the foreign surveillance court, 60 days. he's also got obama care coming up in 60 days and also a continuing resolution coming bin 60 days. do you think he has the stomach for this? >> no. he hasn't shown the character or shown the leadership to be able to do this because look that. he did this press conference on a friday. on a friday afternoon during the middle of august when hoping some people weren't watching and i think the real reason why he did this press conference and why it was so much about the nsa and the spying, was because he saw his negatives in the polling going up over 50%. there's several national polls right now that have his disapproval ratings over 50% and he's got real problems with his base and he was talking to his base today. he was saying know the spying is not that bad. the worst
, attack. george bush got reelected to a second term with a constant attack from the media and the democrats. in fact, many of the things the media won't report on barack obama, they would attack george bush for. he still managed to get reelected. conservative that's the they take the high road, once they have a critical issue, it resonates like the irs scandal, like obamacare. >> i'm actually heading to frank's vineyard. but it's just a pub down the street. >>> darling of the left richard dawkins facing friendly fire after criticizing islam. where's the outcry when christianity is attacked? we'll examine the double standard. >>> then it's war. as more and more restaurants ban kids. you know those little creatures? and more and more parents are fighting back. we hop0i0i@&@f q q0q?????j >>> celebrity, he is under fair for mocking muslims. he wrote all the world's muslims have fewer nobel prizes than trinity college, cambridge. they did great things in the middle ages though. this has sparked outrage from the west. where is the liberal back lash when christianity is att

going back sadly to the george w. bush years when, you know, he looked into his soul and he could see the real man of vladimir putin. students of russia and people who understand russia, i think, believe that in the era of the new openness after the collapse of the soviet union, there is still a strain and a very strong strain now, of the old lurch to more totalitarian or communist thought. clearly putin has been of that mind set. he is not changing. doesn't mean we can't work with him on some things. but we have to be much more realistic. >> putin doesn't care about snowden. he couldn't care less with him. he is using this. >> to prop himself up. >> show how tough he is. i'm much tougher than your guy. and that's what he is doing. so, if it were me. if i were barack obama, number one, i wouldn't say anything publicly because that strengthens putin. that gives him more power. i would send kerry over there. pretty soon. >> oh, god. that's going to be a disaster. >> bill: kerry, you might not like him, but kerry can be forceful. >> he has done so well on the middle east peace process. >

news coming into the "newsroom" right now. this is about former president george w. bush. we have just learned from his office that a blockage was discovered in an artery in his heart and he had a stent placed to open the blockage. in a statement coming from his office, it says that during his annual physical examination, which he gets at the cooper clinic in dallas, and this happened just yesterday, that this blockage was discovered then. his doctors recommended that he go ahead with this process, so it's a stent being placed in the artery it appears to open the blockage. this is a procedure that was performed successfully this morning, without complication, according to this statement, this took place at texas health presbyterian hospital. he is, according to had his office, in high spirits, eager to return home tomorrow. so he's still in the hospital. and resume his normal schedule on thursday. certainly, they are saying here that it does appear to be somewhat normal and he's trying to get back to work here already this week. according to the statement, he is grateful, of course, to
disgusted in a whole parade of traders, and that includes john mccain, lindsey graham, george bush, who has sponsored the center in texas, and i suffered through two hours of propaganda out of the bush center, and they treat america as a whorehouse. stephen moore treats america like a whorehouse. it is not about the money. c-span keeps playing all of these people. i want to see some balance. one thing mentioned at the george bush center from the hispanic chamber of commerce guy, he was lobbing these wonderful hispanic companies. have any of them enrolled in either a five so they will be true to the 1986 amnesty, which, at that point, required all employers verify eligibility by these workers. they have not done it. we have george bush, mccain, they have done nothing but subvert the law for the last 25 years, and they are trying to put the nail in our coffin now. i would like to see more balance from c-span. there was a wonderful march for jobs in washington dc. i have seen none of that on c- span. i would love to see that. jeb, much loved in alabama, he was the speaker of the conference. th
the opposite test. we had a test in the george w. bush years that went the other way. that said, we're going to cut all kinds of taxes and it's going to unleash lots of economic growth. the opposite happened. not only did it not unleash economic improgrowth, it was a decade, but of course the deficit became a big problem again. i don't think it's fair to say there are a lot of moving parts. there's always a lot of moving parts. i think the policy lesson just hasn't been learned. >> and we were given a surplus. >> tax revenue in the bush years did go up but spending went up more. that was the big problem. in the clinton years spending as a percentage of the economy actually shrunk because -- >> you're introducing -- i agree with you -- relevant moving point. the argument here is if you implement a tax increase in terms of bill clinton or a tax cut in terms of george bush can you go to a place where this has tremendously horrible or tremendously wonderful effects. the clinton years -- >> overall the empirical evidence is overwhelming that increased taxes lead to lower economic growth but other

of then senator biden threatening to impeach then president george bush if he did not get congressional approval before going into iraq. this is becoming a cauldron of uncertainty. it is not good for the region -- >> president clinton lost some missiles in afghanistan. a lot has been written about how that in the end lead to 9/11. you never know about the unintended consequences here, do you? >> no, you don't. president clinton lobbed some missiles into southern iraq and at that point, a lot of people, a lot of our enemies took the notion that we were a paper tiger, that we were not willing to follow through with the actions and that we wanted to just do something. now is not the time to just do something. we ought to have a plan and now that the president has backed up , it is time to all come together and figure out what is it we really want to do that is in the national security interestses of the united states of america and then do it. >> i wanted to -- what greg just mentioned leads into my question. this is all coming down on the anniversary of 9/11. if the house votes what is the chance
the presidency, said, and the house and did not like george bush very much. sure hated losing to them in 2004. they did not quit. they kept working. they took the house and the senate and the white house. it played by the rules. we took them back in 2010. never try to impeach george bush. think long and hard. these things are difficult because it is always easy to say try it. we are doing is now working. usually what that means is we need to work harder for we doing . i am old enough to watch barry goldwater go down in flames. i hated it. it took 16 years to get ronald reagan. but when we got ronald reagan it changed america and the world and ended the old soviet system. so democracy is hard work, stuff like this, people going in knocking on doors, people, you know, going out and voting. we do it. our system works. it's hard to work, and it's hard to work in part because that is what the founders wanted to be. very afraid of centralized powerful government. it will make this difficult to do. but power announcer representatives with the people, the states every year, president that for four ye

, by the way, there were lots of republicans, over 60 who supported a minimum wage increase when george bush proposed it the last time we raised it back in 2007. so this is not an issue that is that foreign to republicans, in no small part but it just polls through the roof. people recognize that a wage floor of $7.25 not a very low wage floor in our economy, but very low by measures of other advanced economies is something that is popular because, a, it doesn't have any budgetary implications. and b, it helps working people get reconnected to a growing economy that has largely left them behind. >> you know, you're right. because when you look at the polling, polls show raising minimum wage is really hugely popular. gallup poll found 71% of americans support it, including 75% of moderates, and even 54% of conservatives. and the fight for higher minimum wage goes all the way back to the first march on washington. did you know, jared, the organizers wanted a national minimum wage to, quote, give all americans a decent standard of living. this is in the '63 march. they wanted it to be $2 an hou
worried about presidents who act unilaterally and he's doing it again just like george bush did. we made george bush come back to the congress and get a vote before we went into iraq. the congress, i think, made a mistake in doing it, but at least we all took responsibility for what happened. in this one, the president is taking it all on himself. what's the hurry and what is the goal? what are you expecting to be the goal that we accomplish day two after we've shot in 50 tomahawk missiles? when we have taken out assad? is that the goal? or is it take out the syrian army? or is it to lay the country waste to make rubble? what is it we are intending to get out of this? >> you clearly want a vote on this, and some of our viewers have been tweeting about this and there's a lot of consternation, obviously, as we stand now in the precipice of what looks like another war in the middle eve. one viewer writing into me, the president needs a vote here if for no other reason to have cover for what happens afterwards. do you think there will be political recriminations after the fact if the preside
of george w. bush. thank you for the invitation. thunder a little bit when you talk about four percent growth year it i would add to what you said, that i do not think we can accomplish four percent growth without immigration. it is a precondition to get to that higher growth rate. it may be too low. we are in the fourth leader -- year of non-recovery. there is no reason the economy cannot he recovering much faster than it is geared five, six, or seven percent growth. it is interesting, if you look at the time i called the quarter-century of spectacular, unprecedented growth in america, 2005 -- 1980 two 2005 -- to 2005. let in well over 200 americans in that time. badle say immigration is for the economy or it causes high unemployment. the actual evidence shows the opposite, that the biggest boom. of american history was the greatest in immigration. it is circumstantial evidence. a second point is with respect to state. it is so interesting. we do a lot of work at the wall street journal. comparing texas to california, it is a good comparison if you are from texas and believe in the fr
